    Homeschooling or Private / Public schooling - Which one is good for children?

    Homeschooling has it's benefits, like the lack of potential bullying or alienation, and the education is also very personal. However, I think attending school with other students is better in the long run. Being at school teaches kids and youths how to be social and how to behave socially. While...

    Atheism

    I'm Atheist and the rest of my family is. I've never been pushed or persuaded towards religion, and I doubt I will ever follow Christianity. I have no problem with religious people. I only get annoyed when they come to my door trying to recruit me. Some of them seriously need to understand that...

    Listen To Music At Night

    I don't listen to music all that often, but it does help me to relax. At night, instead of listening to music on my iPod, I listen to sports talk on my radio. I kind of zone in and out but that's not the main reason I listen to it. The radio helps me to calm down and unwind after a day of work...

    Do You Think You're In The Right Profession?

    I haven't had to make the decision yet, but unfortunately I'm not one of those people who were born knowing what they wanted to do. My father was a Firefighter, as was my grandfather, and that interests me. However, I'm not too sure I'll end up going into that when I'm older. I think it's really...

    Basic Qualities of an Entrepreneur?

    I think a self-employed entrepreneur definitely needs to have patience. As with any company, success takes time, and comes only after hundreds hours of hard work have been put into it. If a person wants to be successful, they really need to understand that it will take time for their business to...

    Playing computer games

    I mainly play video games (Xbox), but it's the same premise as computer games. I find that by doing something I enjoy and am entertained by, I unwind and relax very quickly. It's nice to be able to sit down and play a little bit of Call of Duty after a hard day of work. I always wondered why...

    Tips on drinking more water

    As others have mentioned, simply carrying around a bottle of water will help you start to drink more. Whenever you get thirsty you can just take a sip from the bottle, instead of having to choose if you want juice, pop, or water. This way you'll mostly end up drinking water, which is a much...

    Fear of Success

    I can certainly understand why some people might be afraid of success. It's similar to branching out of your comfort zone and trying new things. I think that the reason people are afraid of being successful is because they don't know what it will bring; it's a new, unknown experience. Alot of...

    Quality of Life

    I don't think that money = wealth is automatic. Sure, monetary well-being helps, but I don't think it truly gives you a good quality of life. Like you said, you could have all the money in the world, and still be stressed to the maximum. I think a good quality of life involves mental well-being...

    Who Here Procrastinates A Lot?

    I'm a procrastinator at times, though I'm usually pretty good about getting things done on time. I guess it is human nature to do the fun things first, and the menial tasks later, which I am prone to doing. Although I do procrastinate, I'll get the work done when it needs to be. I've often...

    Anybody here using the net as a marketing medium?

    The Internet has become a great tool for business. Little fish can no compete against the big, corporate sharks and still have success. Because of the wide demographic and overall activity on the Internet, entrepreneurs are able to gain relatively quick popularity. There is even the new term...

    Half-Empty or Half-Full?

    I'm also a bit of both. I generally try and think of things that I am able to look forward to in the day, which in turn keeps my spirits and overall attitude up. It can be something as simple as "Oh yeah, I've got a can of iced tea waiting for me when I get back". Just little things like that...
